COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George Summer Ale is our new non-traditional summer seasonal offering. An aggressive late hop character coupled with a medium bodied ale has resulted in a highly-drinkable, thirst-quenching beer. A slight maltiness and perfectly balanced hop bitterness along with it’s classic English hop finish makes this the perfect drink for beating the summer heat. This ale is a very pale golden color with a thick creamy white head.

pale gold color; a light, refreshing beer; fairly well balanced; a decent warm weather beer

The pour is pale copper. The head is thick and white. The aroma is mostly floral and quite pungent, revealing a good bit of hops. The taste has the body of a pilsner or lager with the bite of an IPA. The finish lingers not unpleasantly. This stuff is interesting and perhaps addictive.

BrettTaylor (541) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. Hops in the middle, nutmeg in the finish? Tastes a bit light, but probably a good choice for hot summer days.

Beergeek23322 (2470) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2013
July 2010. Sampled at the brewery. A lighter version of a pale ale - seem more watery, but I guess for a Summer ale, that is OK, just not my kind of beer.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Sample at the tap room. The beer is a hazy yellow-orange color with a medium foamy white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt and grassy hops. Light-bodied with flavors of bready malt and mildly bitter herbal hops. The finish is lightly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Butters (3844) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Very clear golden pour wtih minimal ring of white head. Smells lightly grassy and ’clean’ and hints of grain that become more prevalent on the flavor. A slight butteriness, but nothing even close to offensive. Mild grassy hoppiness with a pleasant smooth finish. Semi-crisp. Pretty easy drinker. Good replacement for a budlight. Not so good as a pale ale.

blackflag321 (503) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Sample from a bottle. Light bodied; citrus; slight fruity sweetness. I can see why the brewer calls it a thirst-quencher.

BelgianBeerGal (3240) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle from the brewery. Pretty mild, sweet aroma that reminds me of corn and light grain. Flavor again was light and notes of sweet grain; a little soapy. Meh.

nick76 (4257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2012
The aroma is grainy with hay like hops and a touch of corn. The appearance is amber gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall this is a decent beer.
